By: Sam Starbuck

The year is 1880, and Jack Baker is a young, driven student at Harvard University for Engineers. In this America, industry depends on "Creation" magic rather than machines, and most engineers are train repairmen, not inventors like Jack.

Allegorical Expositions of the Holy Laws

By: Philo of Alexandria

Philo used philisophical representations to fuse and harmonize Jewish traditions and Greek philosophy. It interprets both Jewish and historic Greek philosophies.

“It is a melancholy reflection upon the history of the Jews that they have failed to pay due honor to their two greatest philosophers. Spinoza was rejected by his contemporaries from the congregation of Israel; Philo Judaeus was neglected by the generations that followed him.”

By: Keith Young

Blending a subtle cocktail of Physics and Metaphysics, and building on inspiration from cutting edge thinkers, this new age opus takes the reader beyond the edge of modern science and into a higher dimensional realm where consciousness dictates its own destiny through the creation of multiple realities and a process of self-refinement, eventually achieving supreme omniscience.
